Sirius Called!

The goal was to mix CG elements into a live « action » footage.


What have I learnt?

– nParticle in Maya is really powerful with its perfect integration with nCloth

ModelBuilder inside Nuke is so useful for basic 3D shapes.

-That having a mirror in in your plate can mess your 3D tracker up!

-A better understanding of Maya Fluids

-How to create a good Incandescence render layer for paricles in Maya


What would I do differently?

Better planning before heading into the project, I’ve lost a day of work.

Track more of the original plate, I used only 200/450 frames, it would also have been easier to add more CG afterward.

– Choose better frames so that my head doesn’t go out of the picture frame…
